A FILMMAKER is appealing for donations to fund the completion of her “intimate documentary” of her family’s experience of the 2014 independence referendum.

Jane McAllister filmed her family at the time of the vote and captured the “passion, hope, and fear across the country” in the run-up to the referendum.

Pregnant during the making of the picture, Jane follows her father Fraser, an “irrepressible” Yes activist from Musselburgh, in the lead-up to the historic vote.

She is aiming to raise £25,000 to fund the post-production editing of the material as well as its promotion online and in cinemas.

The Kickstarter launched to fund the final stages of the film states: “In To See Ourselves, we watch the referendum unfold in the small, east coast town of Musselburgh as irrepressible local campaigner, Fraser McAllister, strives for his dream of social reform.

“Free-flowing discussions filmed on streets, in community halls and homes, with those seeking Scottish independence and those wishing to remain part of the United Kingdom (showing clear support for remaining a part of the European Union on both sides) are typical of the conversations which were held in passion, hope, and fear across the country.

“As Fraser works hard towards the re-birth of a nation, his pregnant daughter, Jane, carries both the camera and a new addition to the family... her baby was born the day after filming stopped.

“The No vote in 2014 was devastating for many, but this film ends with hope, not despair, for the McAllisters as new life brings a revived determination for the future.

“This moving documentary is not only an important record of a significant event in Scotland’s history, it also gives a rare glimpse into the lives of ordinary Scots in the 21st century. For a generation surrounded by social media, we don’t often see ourselves or our communities as they really are in film.”

The deadline for donations to reach the £25,000 target is 10am on Saturday morning. You can find out more and watch the trailer here.
